ECO-GRATE

While an open fire is aesthetically pleasing and gives the impression of a 'cosy' atmosphere, an open fire has an efficiency of around 20% . This results in 80% of the available fuel energy being wasted and lost up the chimney into the outside atmosphere. Ecograte redirects the lost heat back into the room thereby saving on fuel and costs.

Eco Grate is designed to emit convection and radiant heat, thus utilising your fireplace to its utmost potential. The design of the product is simple. Eco Grate incorporates a 12vdc tangential fan which draws in floor level cool air and emits this air approximately six times hotter.

Eco Grate has been tested by Gastec in the U.K. (Gastec are an EU approved organisation for the testing of heating appliances). Eco-grate provides a nominal heat output of 4.85kW.

The test results indicate that by using Eco Grate in an open solid fuel fireplace is 2-4 times more efficient and around half the amount of fuel is required than normal.
The product is pre-assembled, the end user simply takes out their old grate and puts in Eco Grate!

A new patented, award winning & innovative product, which is independently tested, Eco Grate gives out a nominal heat output of 4.85kW - which would be regarded as phenomenal heat from an open fire. It will decrease the amount of solid fuel required by half, if not more. Other features:- Distributes the heat evenly, multi-fuel usage, no alteration to the existing fireplace, no fitting costs, installed in a couple of minutes, decreases the amount of CO2 emissions and it is not a permanent structure can be simply stored when not in use.
The Eco Grate works on convection and radiated heat which is utilising the fuel been burnt to its full potential.

BENEFITS
  • Once Eco Grate is installed in the fireplace the consumer will see immediate savings as fuel usage will be less and heat output will increase significantly. By installing Eco Grate the consumer will save on average €630 per year, the initial investment of purchasing Eco Grate will be returned within 6-8 months of use.* In this time Eco Grate will have prevented 7070kW of heat and avoided pumping 3.1 ton (the equivalent weight of three small cars) of CO2 into the atmosphere.*
  • Eco Grate heats the room evenly – no more sitting directly in front of the fire to get some heat!
  • Eco Grate is designed for functionality rather than aesthetics. Eco grate can be removed when not in use or moving house.
  • Most households have a fireplace as the focal point in their sitting room although it is "inefficient" in terms of heating. The only solution to gaining heat and fuel efficiency is to put in a stove, gas or electric fire (very costly to install & costly to run during the winter) but this takes away the ambiance of the open fire. With Eco-Grate you can utilise your existing purchase by making it more efficient and saving on fuel costs, thereby saving the household a costly alternative whilst keeping the ambiance of a real, more efficient, open fire!
